Mwata Henry, 25, will appear before the Serious Offences Court today, charged with one count of murder and six counts of attempted murder.
He is charged in connection with the murder of Redemption Sharpes resident 31-year-old Jaybarry Charles, who was killed on January 24, 2018, while celebrating his birthday with friends at the pavilion of the Redemption Sharpes Playing field.
At the time of the incident, it was alleged that four gunmen opened fire on the group, hitting five males, one of whom was Charles. The other injured men were Maurice Charles, 18; Shem Richards, 17; Ronald Allen, 20; and Leon Neverson, 17.
They were all taken to the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital (MCMH), where Charles later died.
